i'm about to release an updated deriver
that will handle widescreen video.

if you let me know the name of the item
i can rederive it now using the testcode base
and see how that goes?

Hi Tracy,

for the documentary, I wound up encoding my own flash file and swapping it with the derived version, but I have a couple other 16:9 files that you can do your test with:

i have started rederiving them
and it looks like they are getting correctly
classified as widescreen and should have
good looking derivatives when they finish,
woot!

PS i'll prolly go live with the new widescreen deriver
tomorrow so our patrons can take advantage of it too!
